She's worried she's worried she's worried
She's said too much
And talking I'm talking she's talking
Like books I read
It's easy it's easy to shut yourself off
Never on the record it'll never show up
She wants to be anonymous
I sign anonymous

Feel safe inside, inside those well drawn lines
Boyfriend, a job, a car my white girl life
She swallowed a spider to catch to catch that fly
But I don't know why, why she swallowed that lie

She wants to be anonymous
I sign anonymous
She wants to be like everybody else
I sign anonymous

Not enough for you to know
Not enough for you to own
She wants to be anonymous
I sign anonymous

These words are all I have
These words are who I am

    General CommentWhat does it mean to her when "These words are all I have / These words are who I am" and signs them Anonymous?

    Someone has a real story here; she's got a great tale to tell, but hides behind anonymity because she's scared if you know everything you'll own her.

    Idunno. I really wish I knew what it was about.

    General CommentHm, I don't know. I think he lyrics are more general than that (the lesbian thing). Obviously, they could be interpreted that way, but there is so much about women's experiences that could go along with this song. I sort of always interpreted it as being about a fear to speak up for your self or express yourself. I know in my own experience, I've sometimes felt ridiculed for speaking my mind (ESPECIALLY to men), and so I choose to just shut up, rather than get in a fight. The lyrics "She's worried she's worried she's worried She's said too much" Seem to fit that pretty well. This song is great, the way it can go so many ways, and fit different people's experiences.

    General CommentI think the song is summed up in the verse,
    "Feel safe inside, inside those well drawn lines
    Boyfriend, a job, a car my white girl life
    She swallowed a spider to catch to catch that fly
    But I don't know why, why she swallowed that lie"
    Women have a hard time breaking out of their stereotypical sexist roles because it's easy to just go along with it-it's simple to obey your boyfriend, to get a job and have a car and live the way everyone else does. S-K is saying how they don't get why people would blindly follow that way of life beacause it's so..wrong.
